I love incorporating warmth and texture into spaces, something that adds a feeling of curation rather than design. Bògòlanfini, otherwise known as Mud Cloth is a dyed fabric from Mali that's decorated in linear geometric patterns and made using cotton and fermented mud. Most commonly found in black and white true Bògòlanfini is characterized by blurred bleeding lines and raw sewn patchwork in the fabric. The perfect imperfections of this textiles is what I love so much about it.
With the popularity of simple geometric lines in art and interiors, Mud Cloth is popping up everywhere. With its typically monochromatic and high contrast patterns it has a completely modern look but is actually a technic dating back to the 12th century. If it's a look you love try to buy the real deal from fair trade vendors, Fine Little Day occasionally has authentic throw pillows (though they are often sold out as soon as they go in the shop) or if you're feeling DYI Ananse Village has a very nice Fair Trade Bògòlanfini fabric collection.
